Would you repeat the Question, Please?


I’m not usually one to re-post something I’ve run across on the ‘net ‒ normally take the position that if I found it ‒ everyone else has too. But every now and then, something comes up that just begs to be shared ‒ just too damned good to not share. The following (IMH is one of those. Test your critical thinking skills and enjoy!

The following 4 questions will determine is you are qualified to be a professional, Yes, the answers are provided below each query. No, they are not that difficult. But don’t scroll down until you have answered the question! Just realized I can't input sufficient blank lines to hide the answers - so just read and enjoy!

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

Correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, an close the door.

(This questions tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way)

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

Did you say: Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the door?

Wrong answer.

Correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door.

(This tests you ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions)

3. The Lion King is hosting an annual convention. All the animals attend…..except one. Which animal does not attend?

Correct Answer: the Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there.

(This query tests your memory)

Okay ‒ even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage to cross the river?

Correct answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the animal Conference.

(This test whether you learn quickly from your mistakes)

Want the kicker?

According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide ‒ 90% of the professionals they tested got all questions wrong. 90% of preschoolers got 3 out of 4 right.

Therefore, according to ACW, this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four-year old.

Kinda of adds a new twist to the query” How many Aggies does it take to change a lightbulb?

Enjoy your weekend ‒ and think about the questions posed to you over the next few days!!!!!

Kind of cool, might use it sometime if you don't mind but I will leave out the answere. Would have gotten 2 wrong anyway. Must still be in High School.

Later,

Tim

B2,

Haven't heard from you in a bit but I haven't written much myself either but as winter sets in not a bad time to get back to it. Been really bad about posting on my blog but it is always boring anyway but it is more for me that anybody else but for now......

The Time is coming!! HO HO HO.... Let it snow!

By reading this you have just been hit with a snow ball and it's the start of the Snow Ball Fight 2006/2007!!

Two rules to this game....

1. You can NOT hit someone who has already hit you!

2. You have to come back to my blog and enter who you hit.

Now...go out there and get as many people as you can, before they get you!

I got you first and you can't get me back!

Have a great day,

Tim
